Perio·Aid is the first antiseptic combination containing Chlorhexidine + Cetylpyridinium chloride, indicated as an adjuvant to the in-office treatment and control of periodontal and/or peri-implant disease.
Periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, are generally considered chronic diseases that are infectious and inflammatory in nature, located in the tooth support tissues and which potentially cause the loss of teeth. Their primary cause is the accumulation of oral biofilm, both on the inner and the outer surfaces of the gums.
For most patients, using a quality toothbrush is considered the key to the successful performance of good dental hygiene. However, comprehensive oral care requires the use of chemical components found in toothpastes and mouthwashes, because these help to protect teeth and gums by providing different benefits depending on their composition. In this regard, VITIS offers a wide range of products to satisfy people with multiple needs.
Mechanical cleaning with a toothbrush can effectively clean only 60% of the tooth surface, while the remaining 40% corresponds to the interproximal area. [Leer más]

Press conference with media and spokespeople from the Spanish Society of Periodontology (SEPA), the Spanish Society of Cardiology (SEC) and DENTAID. Hospital Virgen de la Victoria, Malaga.
Cardiologists and dentists have joined forces to work toward the prevention of cardiovascular and periodontal diseases. Existing evidence linking gum disease to heart disease has driven professionals from these fields to create a consensus statement addressed to practitioners from both disciplines.
With the aim of creating a framework for cardiologists, dentists and patients for the prevention and treatment of both diseases, the most prominent cardiovascular health institution (the Spanish Society of Cardiology – SEC) and the most important periodontal health society (the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration – SEPA), have come together backed by the sponsorship of DENTAID to work on the first consensus document offering guidelines and recommendations for professionals and patients.
This consensus statement was presented to the media this past September 22nd in Malaga, coinciding with heart week, in order to raise awareness of this relationship and to offer practical advice on prevention for the general public and for cardiologists and dentists themselves. [Leer más]
